The Shakti Mat Light is designed for those a little more sensitive. It has more spikes on it (8,000) than the Original (6,000) – more spikes mean less weight on each spike, so the effect is not as intense. It is made with 8,000 acupressure points to help release tension and induce a state of deep relaxation.
- Made in a charity temple workshop in Varanasi, India
- 100% organic Indian cotton
- ABS 1st class non-toxic plastic for long lasting use (the spikes don’t go blunt!)
- 6000 Acupressure Points
- Detailed brochure with information & instructions
If needed, the Shakti Mat can be hand washed in luke warm water and hung to dry. Please do not use washing machines or dryers, as the plastic discs can be damaged.
The Shakti Mat can be placed anywhere on the body that benefits from acupressure – the back, the feet, the neck and any other sore muscles.
Step 1: Place your Shakti Mat on a flat surface like on the floor or on your bed.
Step 2: After making sure you have bare skin against the mat, sit down in front of the mat and slowly roll down on top of it.
Step 3: The first 5 minutes may give you a feeling of pain. This is simply the result of tension release. The more tension you have accumulated in your body, the more pain you’ll initially experience. By focussing on your breath, the tension will easily be released.
Step 4: Even if you feel pain, try staying on the mat and focussing on your breath. The body sometimes needs some time to rebalance, and soon endorphine release will replace the discomfort. Stay on the Shakti Mat for between 15 minutes and an hour.
